The new paperback features an amazing interview with original band member Simon Brenner. Here's a brief excerpt: "Mark and I became close at this point. I felt that we had similar ideas about music and, although we didn’t know much else about each other, the music was what we focused on, and it really seemed to work. We decided we needed some help, and Ed (Mark’s brother) said he knew two guys – I remember going down to a hall in Canvey, and these two dads turned up with their sons, Paul and Lee. The dads set up the drums and amps for them. We felt so old, but thought they were great." To pre-order your book,please visit http://spiritoftalktalk.com
